Chalkfly Gives Back School Supplies to Teachers, Reaching over 67,500 Students Around the Country

Detroit, MI, May 28, 2014 – At Chalkfly, every purchase is meaningful with the Giveback, which allows customers to give 5% of their order to a teacher for classroom supplies. Chalkfly’s Giveback has impacted over 67,500 students around the country by giving them the supplies they need to learn, create and succeed.

99.5% of teachers report spending their own money on supplies in order to give students basic tools they need for class. Chalkfly’s Giveback rallies the community around teachers so they can focus on what they do best: teach! The Giveback empowers individuals and companies to take the everyday task of ordering office and school supplies and turn it into a philanthropic moment that impacts the community by helping students and teachers.

Along with the Giveback, Chalkfly’s Teacher Registry allows teachers to create a customized wish list of classroom supplies. Anyone can purchase items on a Teacher Registry, and Chalkfly ships the supplies directly to the teacher. The Teacher Registry makes it easy for teachers to get the supplies they need with contributions from friends, family and the community. A little help goes a long way, and Chalkfly empowers customers through the Giveback and Teacher Registry to support teachers and students.

With the Teacher Registry, Detroit teacher Carly Abarbanel was able to supply her students with new Texas Instruments calculators that many of them were unable to afford on their own. After using the Teacher Registry, Ms. Abarbanel said, “This is a very small thing that makes people feel like they’re doing something for your classroom. People want to get involved and this is a very easy way for them to get involved.”

Chalkfly is dedicated to the community and visits classrooms around the Detroit area to follow the Giveback that their customers make possible. Check out their blog to keep up on teachers that are benefitting from orders every day.
